A few years ago I came across this Marshmallow Oreo Chip Cookie recipe© from The Gracious Wife™. I knew they would be delicious just reading through the recipe, but it didn’t prepare me for just how good they would be. A couple weeks later I made them again for a dessert table at a birthday party. You wouldn’t believe how many people approached me about them! Some wanted the recipe, some wanted to know if I would be willing to make and sell them, and there were even a few who sheepishly asked if they could take some home.
When I was whipping up the batch for this blog post my sister happened to call. The conversation went like this…
“What are you doing?”
“Oh, I just took some cookies out of the oven.”
“Oreo and Marshmallow”
“Are those the ones with the Cookies n’ Cream bar?”
“I’ll be right over.”
And she was!
I’ve made a few small alterations over time so if you want the original recipe be sure to check out The Gracious Wife blog©.
Marshmallow Oreo Chip Cookies, Adapted
1/4 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup butter, softened
1 tsp vanilla
4.2 oz pkg Oreo cookies ‘n creme instant pudding
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 1/4 cups flour
1 cup mini marshmallows
6 oz chopped pieces of Hershey’s Cookies ‘n Cream bar
8 Oreos, coarsely crushed
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugars.
- Add eggs and vanilla and mix again.
- Mix together flour, baking soda, and salt. Add to butter mixture, along with cocoa powder and pudding mix. Stir until everything is fully combined.
- Fold in marshmallows, chopped candy bar, and crushed Oreos.
- Chill dough for about 30 minutes.
- Scoop rounded tablespoons of dough and shape into balls. Place on a greased cookie sheet (and I DO mean greased. None of that wimpy cooking spray. You’re going to have to break out the butter and slick it down because marshmallows are sticky!) or silpat 2 inches apart.
- Bake for 8-11 minutes. When they come out of the oven you can use a greased butter knife to gently push the marshmallows that have spread back against the cookie edges. Allow the cookies to cool on the cookie sheet before moving.
